I own hundreds of cookie cutters. Like well over 600. Even though I continue to purchase new cutters all the time, I still find myself needing to piece together (or "Frankencookie") cut cookie dough shapes to create the look I want. It can be stressful making a collection of cookies- enough to make me want a spa day!
And wouldn't you know it- this Spa Day collection has two Frankencookie pieces. Don't afraid to piece together those cookie shapes! I have a secret to make them fit together perfectly!
Some of my favorite cutters are this set of concentric smooth and scalloped circles. I used them to make this trio of bubbles.
Take a look at what I discovered when piecing together the bubbles.
When I first pieced together the circles, I ended up with a gap in between the circles that may or may not have baked together smoothly.
The secret??? FLIP one of the circles over and voilà!! A perfect fit!
I have found that this FLIP concept works with other cutters too! The lipstick and lips were two different cutters. I flipped the lip and it fit snugly into the space I made in the lipstick.
So don't stress if you can't find the perfect cutter!
Cut it, Flip it, Bake it!
Is it time for the spa yet?
I'm Amy. Wife, Mom, former science teacher- and now full time cookie baker on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Pull up a chair and we create! I'll bring the coffee- maybe Mike (The Cookie Widower) will make it for us.
